Can you really complete a business trip with just 3 pairs of shoes?! We say Yes! With all the airline regulations on carry-on and checked in bags, we have all become judicious packers. Since shoes take up the most space, any space saved on shoes can be used to pack other accessories. Let’s face it – we women need a lot more “stuff” than men do!

So which three shoes to pack? Here is our suggestion:

Heels : The essential of every business trip! Pack a pair of black heels that will match most formal dresses. How high are upto you!
Sneakers : Stay fit and active by bringing along a pair of running shoes and using the hotel gym. In most cases, you just have to go down a couple of floors, so there should be no excuse!
Flats : Versatile flats from Fit In Clouds allows you to slip into some thing comfortable after wearing the heels all day. Comfortable and trendy, these are perfect for after-work events or travel when heels just will not work!

Using a shoe bag to pack these shoes it a great way to make sure they don’t mess up any other items in your suitcase! Safe travels!

There’s no place like home! Dorothy enchanted us back in the day with her ruby red slippers, but who says we can’t rock them too? We love the Parisian look, especially with those romantic pops of red.How to Wear Red Shoes- Paris Style
Rocking red sequined shoes with a flirty striped sweater certainly screams “city of love”, especially when paired with a romantic cream colored beret. Layer a chic trench over everything to keep yourself nice and warm as well as a red scarf and you’re all set to ride off into the Parisian sunset on the back of a Vespa. ( A girl can dream, right?) With the right style, you will fit right in with this beautiful city! 

That did sound a bit strange to us when we heard it first, but it all made sense when Lindsay wrote about them in her blog Pursuit of Pink! She planned a trip to NYC with her adorable baby and realized that she would soon get tired of walking around in her fancy shoes. Planning ahead, she threw her foldable Fit In Clouds flats in her baby’s diaper bag and when the baby needed a change, she was ready for her own change!

We know our folding shoes are cute, but wait till you see her adorable baby!!

Celebrity Airport Style

Our favorite female celebrities always manage to look effortlessly chic while flying. Popular looks include boots or flats, comfy t-shirts, scarves for fighting the blast of airplane AC, and of course sunglasses for facing the glaring LA sun- and paparazzi flashes- once they land.

How do you stay celebrity-chic while flying?

Fit In Clouds Guest Post

Working in sales means constantly traveling. In the beginning I was always forgetting my essentials and leaving something at home. Now, two years later, I’ve mastered the art of packing a carry on bag or tote if I’m hitting the road. The Lo & Sons bag is hands down the best investment work piece that I’ve made so far. It holds just about everything (and more) and even has a small bottom pocket for flats. Whether I’m racing for a flight or booking it across town, the Fit in Clouds folding flats are a lifesaver. They easily fit into small bags and even a clutch for evenings when I’m ready to kick the heels off.

A few of my other favorite travel items? An iPad for loading books and magazines on, Kind Bars for my snacking habit and an eye mask and scarf for longer flights.

Fashion week may be over but Paris is never out of style.  Look the part while visiting the City of Light without ever sacrificing your comfort.  Prevent blisters and achy feet with stylist Fit in Clouds flats.  Zoom around the city on the Métro with a carnet de billets {10 pack of tickets} and be sure to study the map before you get there.  Wander through the streets of St Germain de Près where you will find the most luxurious arrondissement of Paris with the least amount of tourists.  Be sure to do some shopping at Le Bon Marché, have a Croque Monsieur at Café de Flore and treat yourself to the famous macaroons at Ladurée.  Bonnes Vacances!

As an event professional, I’m constantly on the go: meeting with clients and then spending my weekends attending weddings, fundraisers or other events that we have going on.  During the off season I love meeting up with friends and going out to celebrate birthdays, new jobs, and more (I’m a believer that everything in life deserves to be celebrated!). While I love dressing for the occasion, I don’t love sore feet at the end of the night. Carrying along a typical pair of shoes along is nice, but they take up more space than what I have available and it’s not very professional to have shoes protruding out of your bag.

When I came across Fit in Clouds rollable flats, I was instantly drawn to their adorable and trendy styles, as well as their versatility and ability to be folded literally in half for sleek storage.  I opted for the black and white retro shoes and couldn’t wait for them to arrive to take them out on the town!  When the shoes arrived, I tested them out in a handbag to see how they’d fit.  There was plenty of room for my other night-out essentials and from the outside you couldn’t even tell what was hidden inside.

event crashers rollable flatsAfter a night in the city with friends, I changed into the flats for the seven block walk home.  Right off the bat I was extremely surprised at how comfortable these shoes were!  They were soft and cushioned and offered enough support to get me through the rest of the evening.  I’m definitely looking forward to the peak of wedding season to keep these in my bag for immediate relief.

But where else could Fit in Clouds shoes come in handy in your life?

On campus:  You have a huge presentation for one of your classes and professional suit attire is required.  You don’t mind dressing up but you aren’t looking forward to your trek to class in your adorable heels.  The solution?  Put on your Fit in Clouds flats that will still look great with your outfit as you’re walking to class, then change into your heels either right before entering the room or when you get to your desk.  Tuck your flats back into the handy bag until after class when you’re ready to walk to your next destination.

At your wedding:  There are a TON of great uses for Fit in Clouds for your wedding day!  Purchase a pair that matches your color scheme and theme to put on after all the traditional elements are done and you’re ready to rock out and dance the night away.  With the variety of styles available, you’re certain to find something that matches with your day.  You can even go one step further and purchase shoes as gifts for your bridesmaids as well, ensuring that your ladies all have matching wedding shoes.  They can even customize the bag for you with your wedding date or monogram as an amazing and unique keepsake.

For travel:  Running through the airport can be tough, especially if you’re running in winter shoes or work heels.  Packing these along in your bag can be a lifesaver in the airport, as well as at your final destination. In the near future, Fit in Clouds will even offer flip flops that could be used at your warmer vacation spots.

Where do you see yourself using Fit In Clouds shoes in the future?
